The world has always enjoyed a blend of fashion and technology. It is one thing that has remained constant over ages. However, the blend is taking an even higher dimension in contemporary times. From all indications what lies ahead is more fascinating than anything it has ever produced. Establishing this claim should not pose any difficulty.
Let us go down memory lane into the 70s popularly known as the boom box era. Every music lover then looked forward to purchasing his or her boom box as it aids carrying favorite tunes and stations around. The movie industry could not resist its attraction and had to join other lovers of boom box in the 80s. By the 90s, the boom box became outdated as the Walkman took the world by storm. The personal music experience that came with the Walkman was unprecedented. Before the turn of the century, the iPod took center stage as it was more portable and did all that the Walkman is capable of. Obviously, technology growth has its root in what people consider fashionable.
Currently, the blend of fashion and technology is getting more pronounced. The case of fashion designers readily comes to mind. They seem to be only interested in creating what appeals to customers at the moment, and the belief is that only by employing technology can they attain innovation and functionality of higher standard. Anouk Wipprecht buttressed this view when she uttered the statement: “[technology is] like a playground, a place of experiment, and as you dive deeper and deeper into the technology and systems, it rewards you with endless possibilities.” This woman came to lime-light with the avant-garde designs she invented.
Many master-pieces have been invented through the collaboration of fashion and technology. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin came up with the Airbag for Cyclists. Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon created Frontline Gloves. SegraSegra stunned the world recycling inner tubes of bicycles to produce jackets and t-shirts. Emma Whiteside invented large gowns from recycled radiator copper. Today, we have clothing that captures kinetic energy for powering appliances like watch and mp3.
If there is one reason to look forward to a more beautiful, creative and protected world, then it is definitely the ever continuous blend of fashion and technology.
